Sorry to hear that!  She sounds terribly annoying 🙁

I’d personally be brave enough to confront the inappropriate behaviour as it comes up.  Tell her politely you feel taken back by what she said and ‘innocently’ ask if you’ve done anything to upset her.  I wouldn’t be harsh but certainly I’d let it be known that you aren’t pleased by her behaviour.  Stay focused on the individual incident though as it arises, and don’t bring up any past things.

@mrsed: That sounds horrible to even deal with, but you have to put your foot down now or you are in for a life time of dealing with this. Now its your wedding next it will be how you raise your children. If your fiance is in agreement that she’s gone overboard and you have talked about how this makes you fee with him tell him to either take care of it or you will have to take care of it yourself but you don’t want to make waves with his family. Then next time she says ‘if it were my wedding” cut her off and say “well it isn’t your wedding now is it?” Stand your ground! Good Luck!!

Tell her to shove it! No one should make you feel bad about anything on your special day. Next time she pulls the “if it were my wedding…” card, just respond with a nice “well it’s not, it’s MY wedding!”.
